Reason For Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes Betting Tips

Benfica open up the new Primeira Liga campaign on Friday night, as they clash with Guimaraes. After losing their league title to Porto last term, the Eagles will be out to return to the summit this time around. They’ve had a quiet summer window, but that might be of benefit to them ahead of the new season. Continuity could be a huge bonus in their push for the title, but will that be enough to cover up their failings last season? This weekend’s opener should go some way to telling us how Benfica are shaping up.

Benfica’s dominant place at the top of Portugal’s Primeira Liga came under threat as they lost their goalkeeper and two defenders last season. That left the side struggling in the opening weeks, but they’ve since managed to pick up. The Eagles were on course to slip outside of the top two and miss out on Champions League football, while they lost all six group matches in that competition. The early months of 2017/18 weren’t great for Benfica, but they had more to smile about as they reached the end of the season.

The Eagles turned around their form in the second half of the campaign, and they went on a winning run which put them in the title hunt. While they only managed to finish second, there were shoots of recovery in that run. Will that now be turned around in the 2018/19 campaign? The hosts will be desperate to make a strong start, and they did get off to a win in their first competitive match of the season – beating Fenerbahce 1-0 in a Champions League qualifier in midweek.

With the second leg looming, it’s good for Benfica that they don’t have too big a test here. They’re fancied for the points against Guimaraes, and that feels deserved, with the visitors losing at seven of the eight sides who finished above them last term. They failed to win 76% of their away trips overall, while Benfica claimed 14 wins in 16 at home to sides below them last season. They look set for another win here, and we expect it to be comfortable.

Benfica hit 2.7 goals per game at home last season, letting in just 0.5 goals per game in return. They managed to win by two goals or more in 11 of their home victories, and they’ve scored twice at home to Guimaraes in their previous seven meetings. With that in mind, we think the best place to look for value is backing Benfica with a -1 handicap, which requires a home victory by a two goal margin or greater. Meanwhile, we’re tipping a 3-0 home win for the title challengers.
